Why Did Rob Kardashian Skip Kourtney Kardashian And Travis Barker’s Wedding?

There wasn't any bad blood between Rob Kardashian and his oldest sister, Kourtney Kardashian, who understood his situation and desires.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have recently exchanged vows in a lavish celebration in Italy. However, there’s something else that attracted the fans. Fans of the Kardashian–Jenner clan missed seeing one of the key family members at Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding to Travis Barker,  her younger brother Rob Kardashian. The one-time reality star opted to skip the lavish wedding in Portofino, Italy because he ‘didn’t feel comfortable,’ with all of the ‘spectacle.’

Rob had been largely absent from the latter seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, following the fallout from his failed relationship with Blac Chyna, who lost her $100 million lawsuits against his sisters and his mother Kris Jenner. Although almost every other member of Rob’s family seemed to be living it up at Kourtney and Travis’ wedding, he wanted to keep out of the spotlight after previously shunning it.

Meanwhile, a source close to him said, “Rob didn’t feel comfortable attending Kourtney’s wedding because he doesn’t like a spectacle.” They added that the celebration was ‘just not his thing,’ and he didn’t venture out often because he had ‘become an extremely private person’ in recent years. However, there wasn’t any bad blood between Rob and his oldest sister, who understood his situation and desires.

The Poosh founder was likely cued in that Rob wouldn’t be making the international trip after he also sat out his sister Kim’s 2014 wedding to Kanye West. “Kourtney and the entire family completely understand,” the source clarified. The source added, “Kourtney didn’t expect Rob to attend and knows she has his support either way.” Meanwhile, in 2016, he revealed that part of the reason he skipped the wedding was because of his discomfort with his body and weight gain at the time.

Aside from Rob, his sisters Kim, Khloé, Kendall and Kylie all made the trip to Italy for the wedding, as did his mother Kris, who filled in to walk Kourtney down the aisle. Last year, during the reunion finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloé tried to explain Rob’s absence from the series, which she attributed more to his traumatizing relationship with Chyna than his body image and health struggles.
